How Queen Latifah Keeps Her Late Mother’s Memory Alive
Feb 18, 2021 @ 1:12pm
Queen Latifah’s mother, Rita Owens, passed away in 2018, but she says she still feels her presence in everything that she does.
She opened up about her and said, “She still talks to me. I know it’s going to sound crazy, but I get little signs. Lights will blink. Things will flicker. People will come into my life that I don’t know where they came from, but they become very helpful.”
She adds, “She made such a big impact, not just on my life, but on thousands of students whose lives she changed over her 25 years of teaching — kids who thought they had no future until they met Mrs. O. and she called them by their names and told them that they can be whatever they wanted to be. And they may not have ever heard that message before.”
Have you ever felt someone close to you after they’ve passed away?
